INTRODUCTION. 



EADING members of the Japanese Colony in London 
*— ' have thought that at the present moment, when the 
forces of their country are collaborating with those of 
England and her European Allies in vindicating the cause of 
justice, right and civilization, a contribution towards the 
needs of the British Red Cross Society might be obtained by 
bringing together representative examples of Japanese Arts 
and Handicrafts, selected from the collections of art lovers 
in England. 

Consequently it was decided to approach English col- 
lectors, and an Honorary Committee was formed as follows : 

Chairman — K. Tatsumi, Esq. 

K. Honda, Esq. K. Nanjo, Esq. 

K. Mori, Esq. Y. Ito, Esq. 

N. Kajiwara, Esq. K. Yamazaki, Esq. 

K. Tomita, Esq., Hon. Secretary. 

With Mr. Henri L. Joly as Hon. Associated Secretary. 

The Committee felt sure that the interest which has so 
often been evinced in the Arts and Handicrafts of Japan 
would again be aroused and that it would manifest itself in a 
practical manner for the good of so worthy a cause. It has 
been the aim of the Committee to bring together a selection 
of the best examples available and it is gratifying to note that 
they have received an appreciative response, as shown by the 
accompanying list of nearly seventy contributors. 

The Committee are respectfully grateful to Her Gracious 
Majesty the Queen who has honoured them with interesting 
exhibits, to Her Majesty Queen Alexandra for kindly 
expressing her sympathy with their endeavours, to His 
Excellency the Japanese Ambassador, Marquis K. Inouye, 
who took the greatest interest in the work of the Committee, 
and who not only readily granted his patronage but also 
contributed a series of exhibits.

sword ; K means Kozuka, i.e. the small knife carried on the side of the 
scabbard ; F K refer to the pommel (Kashira) and the ferrule (Fuchi) 
at the ends of the handle. Large as this section may appear, it is 
hardly adequate to represent the thousands of sword-guards and other 
fittings in English collections ; in some cases circumstances prevented 
us from obtaining exhibits, in other cases the selection had to be 
curtailed to small numbers : this particularly refers to collections and 
specimens which have been recently dispersed by sales or published in 
illustrated catalogues.
